FSX Gold and Win 8.1 DirectX Issues. HELP!!

Asked by shiffty11 on 02/11/2014 at 11:06 AM
Hi,

I recently received a pretty good machine from work. See below for DxDiag info. I have the most recent windows updates and device drivers. After installing FSX Gold (without a hitch), whenever I try to launch FSX.exe, I get an error message saying "FSX Cannot run ... version of DirectX not compatible... Please reinstall v.9.0 by running FSX setup or microsoft.com/directx".

Is there an easy fix to this?  My sensitive issue is I do not have admin rights on my laptop, but my IT dept is allowing for just FSX But everytime I want to make a change, I need to go to them. So a solution would be amazing!!

I so appreciate any help, and let me know if you would like to discuss a donation :)

Regards,
Dan
